Overview

Set the focus on search boxes without using the mouse

(shortcut: Esc key) Set the focus on search boxes without using the mouse. For those who love to be productive. This extension grew out of my daily need, in my job as a Portuguese to Spanish translator, to focus the search fields on several sites without using the mouse. When we want to be productive, having to leave the keyboard to grab the mouse and click on a search field can waste our time. Therefore, this extension allows you to focus the search field by pressing the Esc key. Very useful on sites like Google, Wikipedia, Linguee, etc.

Thank you! Yes, it works as advertised! To the author: As you say, one gets very tired very quickly constantly having to move one's hands from the keyboard position to the mouse and back again. I was looking for an easy way to jump between the Google search box and the address bar. Apparently, Chrome has reserved Ctrl+L to jump to the address bar (great!) but doesn't have a corresponding hotkey combination for setting the focus to the search box on their own page! Thanks for this! Only... Show more

Thank you for your words. To achieve what you want, being in the address bar, you need to press "Tab" first to enter the web page and then "Esc", because the address bar is not part of any page, but part of the browser, so we can't focus in the address bar. The last version (2.0) of the extension, allows now to cycle between several inputs in the same page
